Competitions
Longitude Prize - Antibiotics Challenge

The Longitude Prize is a five-year challenge with a £10 million prize fund. It will reward a competitor that can develop a transformative, accurate, affordable and rapid point–of–care diagnostic test that is easy to use, anywhere in the world and will conserve antibiotics for future generations.

The Discovery Awards programme, launched on 16th May 2016 and funded by GSK and BIRAC, are seed grants of up to £25,000 each to support existing teams to further develop ideas, and to encourage new innovators from a range of disciplines, sectors and countries to get involved.
